BeOS & Derivatives Gutenprint is a suite of printer drivers that can be used with UNIX and Linux print spooling systems, such as CUPS (Common UNIX Printing System), lpr, LPRng, and others. Gutenprint currently supports over 700 printer models. Gutenprint was recently ported to Haiku, both increasing its printing capabilities, as well as extending its supported printer models. This article describes Gutenprint and the effort to port it to Haiku.

Printing support is nice but there are more important things waiting until haiku becomes usable: a package manager/update feature, wpa encryption and pppoe. Until then it's just a virtual machine toy.


WPA is very nearly there - http://haiku-os.org/blog/axeld/2010-12-14_almost_not_there_yet

PPPoE - I've not seen someone without a proper DSL router in years, seeing as most of the ancient ones don't support the speeds being provided these days. I don't see this actually being of much importance.
